@mike Worked at a bar with 150 different bears years ago. One bartender always kept a 6 of generic beer at the ready for the hapless clowns who would walk up & say “give me a beer.” He’d have that can open in front of them like a quick-draw cowboy. I think it was canned by Pearl & was just awful.
@DistroJunkie The whole damn front office -- Tiller, Vela, & I forget who else, tried to stage an intervention of sorts on me one day. I was unimpressed. I was already working full time nights, playing in 2 bands & making it to class as best i could.
@DistroJunkie Ha, do I. He was perpetually disappointed in me 24/7 & expressed it nearly daily. “Vreeland, you’re in the Come Late, Stay Late Club again, today. You’re never going to be a success acting the way you do.”
@DistroJunkie Been quiet because I’m trying to get ahold of my sleep hygiene so I can feel less stressed & that’s helping. Less on-line time in general, also been practicing my ass off- trying to land some new gigs. Possible album session in the works.
@DistroJunkie No, still trudging along. Throwing money in savings so I have a couple month’s salary if I have to walk without a plan. I have this job as long as I want it, but I’m just stressed by it. Honestly haven’t cast too wide of a net.
@joshmillard There was the thousand shirts we printed after a bowl game with the placeholder final score on the back. They just forgot to tell us it was a placeholder or to tell us what the final score was. Clients!
@joshmillard Uh, Josh...
@June malice/incompetence is not necessarily an either/or proposition. I like the portmanteau “malcompetance.”
Also from the Rothney Astrophysical Observatory Baker-Nunn telescope. By combining a series of images taken over the lunar eclipse, a picture of the Earth's shadow. #astrophoto
@snowdusk_ I still have one, but after 10 years of not updating it, I removed the link to it from my index. An unlinked links page. I’m sure they’re all dead now.
@mbrubeck God, I’d hate to be a meteorologist. Can you imagine studying for years in college & doing your level best but still being wrong half the time? It would be dispiriting.
